Hurt...the pain is usually caused by us

There are several injuries that are inflicted on us..A small cut, a slip here and a bruise there..physical injuries are often healed, though the pain, the scars still remain.

And there are the bruises, hidden, unknown to us caused by emotions and people, who constantly inflict the same wound again and again. No amount of insensitivity can cure this, as the mind heals only to 'unheal' again...yet, there is hope as we steel ourselves and pretend to be strong and believe that such emotions do not exist and such people are not required - or we agree to forgive and forget, only to realize that its not human after all to do so...

But finally the wound that never heals is that caused by us, on us. When we hurt ourselves, sometimes knowingly, sometimes willingly , when we allow others to hurt us, inviting the pain, the scars ...those open wounds never heal..when will we ever learn this ?

Right said. The self inflicted wounds hurt more than anybody else. Cos nobody is supposed to know ourself better than the self.

so, true..the worst pain is to hurt oneself..sometimes we are just so careless to our ownself.. na!!

but I guess there is a learning that happens there too..may be late..BUT I believe it does and one day you learn to have yourself well armed against it :)

I believe its humanly impossible to continue hurting yourself one's you realize you ARE HURT !! :)

True...

we get hurt only if and when we let ppl/circumstances to hurt us...

As Raghu (of Roadies fame) had put it..."Don't be a victim of circumstance, be a master of circumstance"

true ! and agree to the point. But don't you think its really difficult to realize that part when actually somebody in a hurtful situation ? As long as we are humans, we all tend to be damn emotional fools at times.

I differ here - the very fact the you deem any experience as "hurt" is a hurt in itself - i prefer to look at great moments good moment and moments - this way the negativity is removed - we are active constantly and there is no defination of what is right or wrong as it is subjective - as also do reactions to different situations differ

in short all i am trying to say is look at everything in a different perspective - no matter how "bad" there is always some silver lining somewhere....and i am not just preaching - i try and follow it...:)
